    [gnome] How does the GNOME Keyring (SeaHorse) work?

    Hi all,

    Recently I have started to use the GNOME keyring application to store information such as passwords (along with logins) so that I don't have to remember it. Mostly these are passwords to...

    Re: which is the best torrent client

    I vote for Transmission. I think the way its developers were able to build a BitTorrent client that is fast, does the job and looks so simple is nothing short of amazing. It has all I need.

    [ubuntu] Re: How to export per-user process variables?

    Ok, I will try that (I think I even did?!).

    I apologize - it was my own mistake, and a silly one too.

    [ubuntu] Re: Removing "~foo" removed "foo"

    You are absolutely right. I thought it was strange that it did not expand '~~amn' but now I see that it only expands if a tilde is followed by an alpha-num. And only if the user exists - in my case...
